Over the weekend I was lucky enough to meet Brian May and he signed my copy of the Red Special Guitar

The people ive told keep telling me how valuable it is now, and i am
wondering how much do people think a signed red special guitar is worth

BY THE WAY, THIS IS JUST HYPOTHETICAL! I WOULD NEVER SELL IT BECAUSE IT
IS SOMETHING UNIQUE AND PERSONAL TO ME, THAT WILL ALWAYS REMIND ME OF
THE DAY I MET BRIAN MAY :)

Cheers :)

Just curious...

What did you ask him to sign on it?  Just his name or something more personal?

He was in a bit of a hurry to get set up for the gig, so he just let me and my friend back stage quickly and he signed his name.

However he sent me a message the next day from his website, after i left a note saying thank you

I am really pleased for you mate!  Also a little jealous haha - I have a Red Special too, and met the good Dr in January. I knew I was going to meet him, but was too scared to take the guitar with me incase I was mugged in the City Centre.  Instead I took my NATO special ed CD to get that signed.  Waited a while, too, so I could easily have gone back to the flat for my RS.  Twit!  Well done anyways, it's a nice aquisition :)


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

Cheers! ah shame you didnt get the guitar signed too! but at least you got the CD signed :)
The only bad thing is i now worry about damaging the signature every time i pick up the guitar...but it was so worth getting it signed so ill live with it! haha

I may have to get a new guitar eventually if i want to save it...perhaps a £3000 Brian May Super? If only!
